How do I get rid of the remains of a partially uninstalled Chrome browser v. 25 if it does not show up in my list of installed programs? Chrome support 

website gives instructions to uninstall manually but I am reluctant to do that because it involves altering the registry. I only know some of v. 25 remains because I scanned my system with Secunia which said v. 25 needs a security patch that has to be manually installed. I prefer to delete v. 25 because I already have v. 26 of Chrome which works fine.

It may be some registry leftover which is seen by Secunia.

I'd leave it alone.

I just discussed a similar issue with Elise today regarding Secunia seeing me have IE7 when I upgraded to IE8. We determined it's likely the remnants of IE7 and the rollback components that Secunia sees. I'm leaving it alone and ignoring the false positive or incorrect positive Secunia sees.
